Kimberly Bondurant first embarked on her skin-nurturing career on the sunny outskirts of Jaco, Costa Rica. For five years, she worked alongside her mother—a licensed aesthetician and former salon owner—at her salon, gleaning her beauty knowledge and techniques. Today, Kimberly has become a licensed aesthetician and beautifies clients of her own.
At My Little Place Boutique, she draws on the training she received from Luscious Lashes as she applies waterproof lash extensions to lids one at a time. During her custom spray-tanning sessions, she darkens complexions with organic and cruelty-free solutions sans harmful UV rays. Inside her boutique, white walls and minimalistic decor let the clothing take center stage. The shelves overflow with jewelry and accessories by Sweet September and D. Ferrari Designs, in addition to skincare products by Ayur-Medic. Two wicker chairs with frilly cream-colored pillows nestle near a vase of flowers and beckon guests to rest and brainstorm new job-search options for the sun.
